Documenting my solution RRS feed

  • Question

  • After I have created a solution with tables, view, queries, macros and all, I want to make some kind of documentation of my solution.

    Is there some way to generate this document based on the solution itself?

  • Hi Leif,

    >> I can't see any of the described tools when I am working with an Access Web App solution

    At present, Database documenter is only supported for Access desktop database, it is not supported for Access app. The link below descripts it.

    >> The only format I can save my work in is the .app format, and that format cannot be imported into the "normal" Access environment to make the reporting

    Do you want to convert your Access desktop database to Access web app? I am afraid that there is no directly way to achieve that. If you want, I think you need to manually recreate the Form, query, tables in the desktop database.

    If this is a feature you want to include in the feature version of Access web app, I suggest you submit a feedback as picture below:

    Best Regards,

  • Hmm, I can't see any of the described tools when I am working with an Access Web App solution. The only format I can save my work in is the .app format, and that format cannot be imported into the "normal" Access environment to make the reporting. What am I missing?

  • I think I got it now: Under the File Menu, Info, there is a button "Report on my Data". What it does is, it lets me save as an accdb file, which I can then open in the desktop access development client.

    At least it lets me report on the database structure. Unfortunately it does not support documentation of the different views and macros that are also part of the solution.
